    Pinal Co., AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu said drug cartels armed with AK-47’s “control many areas on American soil” noting that they are only 30 miles from Phoenix. Babeu detailed touring the border yesterday with Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson and said, “We flew him in our helicopter, showed him the drug smuggling routes, the actual caves—these cartel scouts live on top of mountains, 30 days at a time. And how on mountain top to mountain top, over a 50-mile swath of land, and this is only 30 miles from Phoenix.” This is literally an unsecured border. We have cartels that...

In a state as expansive as Arizona, riders understand the importance of having sound infrastructure, especially when it fails, as it did with the recent bridge collapse on I-10 in California not far from the Arizona border that continues to impact travelers across our state and region. Throughout history, providing for our nation’s infrastructure has been a central priority for both political parties.

Takei is a very rare bird: an intellectually honest liberal. I'm not going to cover in detail what Takei said and what Justice Thomas wrote.  You can read about it here, here, and here. To sum up, Justice Thomas wrote in his dissent on Obergefell v.

With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over.

He said the contest was not a freedom issue, because the right to free speech is certain, but rather a moral issue. He likened the contest to the use of the N-word. In fact, use of that word is selectively defined as hate speech. And moral or not, under those laws, it is illegal. Cuomo and Pamela Geller got into shouting match over that analogy.

Dozens of officers lined up between the two sets of protesters, using yellow police tape to separate them near the gates of the Islamic Community Center mosque in north Phoenix. "Stop Islam" was among the slogans on placards held by bearded bikers, one of whom wore...
